One day at a time Wishing.
Happy sober New year - fantastic to see you doing so well. Its awesome!!!!

Had a great Christmas with family, remembered the whole day, didn't make an a** of myself and didn't fight or argue with anyone. Awesome stuff.

Oh yeah - and had a really good time!! LOL. had a night out in Sydney too, on the town dinner and a late night concert, all sober. life is good.

Its great to realise we can do normal stuff, have fun and be social without having to drink. Good on you for experiencing this too Wishing.

take care
Idgie

AWESOME! half way to the one year mark.Keep up the good work, be proud of your accomplishments and remember to keep it ONE DAY AT A TIME and NEVER forget where the booze took you. Often you have spoken about how you drink water. It reminds me of a country song. not sure if you like country music or not but am sharing a song with you that was very important to me in early recovery...

wine into water.

Hi everyone,

It's been a little bit since I've updated. I've been battling trying to quit smoking. This last time I lasted two weeks and I'm back smoking again... ugh..

But... I'm still sober from alcohol 193 day's!!
I'll be in the 200s in a week ;)

Love,
Wishing

Way to go Wishing! Cheering you on!!!

Are you still drinking water? I like mineral water with a slice of lime in it. Sooo refreshing in this hot weather.

Congratulations Wishing! You are doing awesome! You will beat the smoking too. I was sober for 2 years before I finally conquered the smoking battle. I had to remember that I didnt give up drinking to die from smoking. YOU CAN AND WILL DO IT. Still cheering for you and I always will for as long as you keep coming to this board. hugs....

Hi Idgie and Pirate,

Idgie yes I still love my water. I can't go a day without it and buying 4. 24 packs every time I go shopping lol. I wish I had hot weather, right now it Is wind chill of like negative 50. Crazy cold! Pirate it's very difficult as you know to quit smoking. I totally get what you meant by did I quit drinking to die from smoking? I think you said something along those lines. I'm going to do it soon! Hugs back to you.

I love the support and friendship from you both.

Thank you!

Love Wishing

Hi Wishing

Go Wishing, go wishing, go wishing!! LOL 200 days and counting.

My partner celebrates his 5 years sobriety day soon - we are looking forward to that. And then a couple more weeks and we will be getting married. Woot!!

So many great things happening thanks to being sober.

Hugs to you and keep up the good work one day at a time
